MACY’S SORDID HISTORY

By | October 20th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

When we learned that Macy's had fired Javier Chavez for his Catholic beliefs—he expressed disagreement with allowing cross-dressing men to use the women's bathroom, but agreed to abide by the policy—we spoke out. We also researched other instances of intolerance by Macy's. What we found is a sordid history: Natalie Johnson, an African American employee at [...]

By | October 20th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The following article written by Bill Donohue was recently published by CNSNews.com. Ten years ago, when liberal activist Betty Friedan died, the media greeted the news with bouquets. But there are no accolades being bestowed by the media for conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly, who died on Labor Day. Indeed, the disparate treatment is stunning. When Friedan [...]

A local resident wandered on to the campus of Clemson University, sat down on a folding chair, and held up a sign reading, "PRAYER."

CATHOLICS FOR CHOICE GAMBIT FAILS

By | October 20th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Advocacy campaigns, especially when conducted in the print media, are very expensive. Fortunately, whether they work or not is not hard to determine: if they generate a lot of  controversy, they work; if not, they fail. Catholics for Choice's (CFC) latest effort is a monumental failure. Two days after its print advertisement blitz in several newspapers, [...]

JUDGE HAMMERS SNAP

By | October 20th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

We note with relish a recent ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Carol E. Jackson: she dropped the hammer on the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP).

Over the past decade, there has been a raging argument in pro-abortion circles over messaging: Should they be discreet talking about abortion, or should they wear their pride on their sleeves?

KAINE WANTS TO SAVE THE LOBO

By | September 20th, 2016|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Tim Kaine wants to save the lobo, but not the kids. We confess we had no idea what a lobo was until we looked it up—it's a Mexican grey wolf. Tim says we are running out of them (he does not say whether we should build a wall to save them). How do we know? Because [...]
